Elisenda Asencio-MacMartin | Board Director 

Hey y'all! My name is Elisenda Asencio-MacMartin, and I currently work & live in the Bay Area (and am a San Francisco native..Wash House!). I am a Mental Health Clinician by day in a Psychiatric Emergency Room, and in the evenings, from the comfort of my home, I am a Psychotherapist who works with adult women via Telehealth. Quick rewind!..Upon finishing high school here in San Francisco, I took a detour from my education and became a NFL cheerleader for the San Francisco 49ers for a season, which was the experience of a lifetime, and an opportunity that I am so grateful to have experienced. Following that season of cheerleading, I completed my Associate's Degree at City College of San Francisco, my Bachelor's degree at California State University, LA, and my Master's degree at New York University. I have a strong passion for people, and ALL of the things that make us who we are-the north star of my career has always been understanding and helping others in any way that I can. I am so incredibly excited to be a part of Her Idea, and can't wait to connect with the community that we have built & will continue to build!
